Welcome to Indian Education at Redwood Valley High School!
The Indian Education program has been a fixture at Redwood Valley High school for many years and we are excited to begin another year with our students! Our department at the Middle/High school will be staffed by Ruth Good Thunder, Holly Schmitt and Jackie Probst as we combine the two area's as a continuous 5th-12th grade program. In doing so we are able to create mentoring events which connect our high school students with our middle and elementary youth to build their sense of belonging and relationships. We are also here to provide academic, mental and emotional support specific to our Native American students while providing them a positive and safe environment. The program services are available to any self-identified Native student, and although many of our students come from the nearby Lower Sioux Indian Community, we welcome our relatives from any of our native nations. The services include monitoring their attendance and academic progress while communicating with them and their families to resolve any obstacles which would hinder their ability to reach their potential. While tutoring is available before and after school, we also offer opportunities to explore cultural enrichment events, team building activities and post-secondary and career options.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions-
Have a great summer and check our our "Indian Ed. News" tab for 2019 summer opportunities!
We look forward to seeing you in September!
